Description
Over the years, Virginia custom knifemaker Ed Van Hoy has conceived a number of award-winning designs for CRKT, including the highly successful Snap Lock™. Ed is always thinking, and coming up with original ideas, and his new Yea-Go™ is a perfect example. Yea-Go is a Navajo phrase meaning "all your might" and Ed has certainly put all his might behind this one.

First he invented an entirely new patent-pending mechanism he calls the Arcuate Opening System (1) (A.O.S.™), which is a new advance in the world of assisted opening that is so popular today. It uses a unique arced internal frame slot and a spring-mounted blade pivot, which together allow the blade to be opened instantly by just a flick of the contoured thumb disk. The locking liner crisply snaps into place.

Opening is simply a matter of pressing down on the thumb disk and releasing it quickly with a slight forward flick. The blade is safely stowed when folded, and casual pressure down on the blade does not actuate opening. One-hand closing is quickly accomplished as with any locking liner folder.

Like Ed, the design and build of the Yea-Go are permeated with character.

The modified drop point blade of premium AUS 8 stainless steel has a swedged top edge, high hollow grind, and is lightened by seven holes.

The stainless steel InterFrame build is also optimized by one thick liner and one thinner locking liner. A PPS composite back spacer at the butt aids balance and gives incredible rigidity. The lightweight 6061 aluminum scales are hard anodized matte black, and are also liberally drilled and scalloped.

To top it off, Ed has invented a new removable and reversible pocket clip system (2), which can be removed and reversed simply by sliding it out of the detented slot in either scale.

Just when you think you've seen it all, here comes a folder that does things differently. What's important is that it does them very, very well. And we have priced the Yea-Go so competitively that you can afford to own one of the most advanced folders available today.
